A common refrain sung by those determined to demolish the biblical Jesus in the court of public opinion is that His life, death, burial, and resurrection are myths borrowed from ancient pagan mystery religions. Once reverberating primarily through the bastions of private academia, this refrain is now also commonly heard in public arenas. Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the π˜‰π˜ͺ𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 π˜”π˜’π˜― broadcast and the 𝘏𝘒𝘯𝘬 𝘜𝘯𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘨𝘨𝘦π˜₯ podcast, notes that the first prevailing myth widely circulated in this regard is that the similarities between Christianity and the mystery religions are striking. Purveyors of this mythology employ biblical language and then go to great lengths to concoct commonalities. Take, for example, the alleged similarities between Christianity and the cult of Isis. The god Osiris was supposedly murdered by his brother and buried in the Nile. The goddess Isis recovered the cadaver, only to lose it once again to her brother-in-law who cut the body into fourteen pieces and scattered them around the world. After finding the parts, Isis β€œbaptized” each piece in the Nile River and Osiris was β€œresurrected.” The alleged similarities as well as the terminology used to communicate them are greatly exaggerated. Parallels between the β€œresurrection” of Osiris and the resurrection of Christ are an obvious stretch. And, sadly for the mystery religions, this example is as good as it gets. Other parallels typically cited by liberal scholars are even more far-fetched. Not only that, but liberals have the chronology all wrong: most mystery religions flourished long after the closing of the canon of Scripture. Thus, it would be far more accurate to say that the mysteries were influenced by Christianity than the other way around.
